Dear Harvest Family,
We encourage you to set your hearts and a window of time, to pointed prayer and fasting this week. Here is a suggested focus for today.
"Fasting For Humility"
I proclaimed a fast, so that we might humble ourselves before our God and ask him for a safe journey for us and our children, with all our possessions….So we fasted and petitioned our God about this, and he answered our prayer. - Ezra 8:21-23
Here, fasting was a means to humility. It was a way to humble themselves before the Lord as they sought Him in prayer for protection. They fasted humbly, prayed fiercely, and God answered.

God, we pray that you make us humble before you as we seek your face, turn from our wicked ways and beseech your healing for our land.
